Like, did you notice Sessions use of a “classic legal strategy” — turning around a question by saying, “You tell me!” Or maybe you were too distracted wondering why the attorney general was lingering at meetings? Regardless, the occasion gave Colbert a great excuse to try out his Sessions impression, which is basically just a slightly higher-pitched Foghorn Leghorn.
